The Tokyo Tower is one of Japan’s well known landmarks. I grew up always wanting to visit it as it was such a strong symbol of Tokyo in itself at the time. I remember coming across the imagery of the tower in various foreign films as well as popular anime when I was younger. Although in a sense the newly built Tokyo Sky Tree has stolen some of the shine and attraction of the Tokyo Tower, the original allure is still there. I took a stroll up to the tower not too long ago simply for the sake of visiting a landmark I had seen many times, though never up close on a personal level.
It is now the second highest tower in all of Japan but still a wonderful place to visit and enjoy.
